Hookin Up with HoH #149

Thanks so much for all the virtual hugs you sent my friends Jay and Scott after losing their 8 year old son Max to brain cancer yesterday. It warms my heart to see them receiving so much love and support. For those in the Austin area who wish to attend, they have posted the funeral service info on their Grow Taller For Idiots
Team Max facebook page. I’ve also added it to the bottom of my tribute post about Max.

** So, are you new here? I throw the Hookin’ Up with HoH Party every week to give all of you a chance to find other awesome blogs to read. Below you will find several hundred mini links to other people’s blog posts. Have fun browsing through the links in search of new ideas. Also, if you are a blogger, please feel free to add your own links to the list!


Please refrain from posting links to shops and stores.

Please note: RECIPES/FOOD is a separate link. Please make sure you are linking in the appropriate section.

Here are a few of my favorites from last week’s link party:

Better With Age updated a blank wall in her kitchen with an office area. Such a great idea!

Simply Designing shows how to make ice cream in a bag. We recently did this at a resort and it was so fun (and delicious)! I’m glad to finally have the recipe so we can recreate it at home.

The Wood Grain Cottage made a hanging ironing board rack. It’s so much prettier than anything I’ve ever seen at the store.

A beautiful dining room makeover at Nalle’s House.

Smart Girls DIY updated this awkward staircase platform and it looks amazing now. You really must go check out the before pictures.

Like camping? Make sure to read this great list of camping tips from Twin Dragonfly Designs.

The Turquoise Home shares some really great yard sale tips.

I am {secretly} a geek at heart, and I am geeking out over these 8-bit Mario magnets from Law Student to Life Student. 8-bit + Mario = super geeky. Love.

Artzy Creations finished a friendship bracelet so now instead of it looking like something your 10 year old has tied around their ankle, it looks pretty enough for a grownup to wear.

So so so smart! Turn plastic lids into stamps using Crafty Journal‘s easy tutorial.

One Sweet Appetite shows how to make lollipops using a powdered sugar mold. Very cool.

Lizy B does it again! This time with beautiful birdies and owl cookies. Her creations are amazing.
